Many Everton fans have been drooling over the transfer news from Bild (via The Gwladys Street) that the Merseyside club are reportedly interested in bringing Leon Bailey and Weston McKennie to Goodison Park in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Carlo Ancelotti seems to want to raid the Bundesliga and based off of the stats of the two players compared to others in his own team, a double swoop may be a wise move.
Who should Everton sign, if only one was available?
Bailey scored more goals and made more assists than Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Bernard have in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, and also averaged more dribbles and crosses in Germany’s highest division, according to Whoscored.
McKennie also averaged more interceptions, clearances and blocks in the German top flight than Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes have done so far in this Premier League campaign, as per the website.
These EFC supporters drooled over the potential raid of Bayer Leverkusen and FC Schalke 04 respectively on Twitter, as both men could be an improvement on their current side:
Better than our whole Midfield

McKennie is an interesting one, would bring a lot of energy into that midfield just not sure if he has the ability yet to be a good player for us

Weston Mckennie would be a nice addition in our midfield
